Over 100 people attended our #FACEit Conference on 15th March and we would like to thank everybody who was involved. Members from local faith groups, businesses, the council, police, schools, as well as charities such as the Children’s Society and Barnardos, were represented.
BBC Three Counties Radio covered the event and described it as a, “high-powered conference” and “brilliantly run.” Listen to two clips from the show, broadcasted on Sunday 18th March 2018, here:
Our prominent speakers were very well received and their emotive and informative presentations made a huge impact on the audience. In particular, Sara Rowbotham’s honest account of her experiences in Rochdale gripped the listeners and brought many to tears.
One member of the public expressed, “It’s hard to believe this stuff actually happens. Luton needs you FACES.”
Several agencies applauded the work of FACES and expressed their desire to work together to safeguard young people.
We have been encouraged by the influx of positive enthusiasm for our work to continue and are expectant about the strong partnerships that are forming.
